(Please click on the photo for clearer resolution - I have no idea why Blogger is making my photos look fuzzy lately, they look fine once you click on them). I don't have a lot of TGF stamps, so I had to kind of work backwards, looking at the stamps and saying 'What musical could these represent?" When I saw this kitty image in TGF's Fur-ever set (LOL, which had puppies in it of course) I thought of the poster for the Broadway play 'CATS' which is predominantly black with a yellow cat's eye in the middle with folks dancing over the pupil, so that is what inspired this layout. This card also fulfills the following additional challenges:
- Annabelle Stamps Challenge - Say it in Black,
- Paper and Such Online Challenge - CAS Challenge,
- Crafter's Companion Monthly Challenge 23 - Four-legged Friends,
- Critter Sketch Challenge 110 - Critters (fitting no? LOL!),
- Crafty Catz Challenge 128 - Animals, and
- Fab 'n Funky Challenge 116 - On All Fours.
I made a second sample for the challenge as well. This time based on the musical movie 'White Christmas' with Bing Crosby:
I thought little Holiday Anya's outfit reminded me of that scene at the end of the movie when the main characters are dressed up like Santa & Mrs. Claus standing around the Christmas tree and they open the back door to see it is finally snowing at the lodge (sorry if that was a spoiler for some folks who haven't seen the movie yet). I created a snowy scene tearing some pre-glittered white paper by DCWV (doesn't show up super sparkly in this photo, but it is IRL) and used a piece of patterned paper from their winter stack to make it look like it is snowing in the background as well. I punched the tree out of Garden Green cardstock with an EK Success tree punch and added some rhinestones as ornaments and the star on top (I meant to string some silver or gold cord back and forth to look like a garland, but forgot and attached it to the card first, DOH!). This was my first attempt coloring 'TGF hair' - what do you think of how it came out? This card also fulfills the requirements of Do You Stack Up's Challenge 67 - Glitter & Bling (sponsored in part by TSG - WOO HOO!!)
Thank you all for stopping by to see my creations and read my ramblings! I hope you have a GREAT weekend and hope to be posting more for you to see later today or tomorrow. Cheers!

About the blurry pics - trying uploading them to Flickr (or a similar site) and then inserting them in your post from there instead. That might help. ;)
